At first I was thinking "Ok. As soon as you see Goldeneye or Super Smash Bros., choose either of those immediately". Then I saw Perfect Dark and I just had to. I don't see why more people haven't voted for it. That was (and still is, actually) a superb game. It's a damn shame Microsoft bought Rare, they screwed up Perfect Dark for everybody.

I'm a little disappointed you didn't include body harvest. It was the precursor to GTA and I'd have liked to play it, except for the fact I don't have an N64.

BonbonJoe said:

I kind of had to make a decision between Majora's mask, and Super smash bros, but I had to go with Link on this one.

Super smash bros FOR THE WIIN.

Avatar

Name123 said:

I chose between smash bros., harvest moon or loz:majoras mask. But because smash bros is multiplayer I chose it.

Avatar

JSAiKO said:

I went for Sin and Punishment basically down to the fact that it was never released over here, played the other games to death.

GFHJ said:

Smash & Zelda FTW.

AlienCoder said:

I agree Perfect Dark was an awesome game and had great replay value. Banjo-Kazooie took a close second.

Same here Bonbonjoe, and I went with Majora's mask as well.

Go Jet Force Gemini! Yeah.

Super smash bros, but I would like goldeneye too.

Avatar

Zach said:

If for some odd reason, Nintendo could have Goldeneye/Super Smash Bros and then make it have online support, it would be unbelievably sweet. Since we will have SSB online in Dec, I went with Goldeneye *Remembers the many hours playing in the Facility with Proximity Mines with his buddies*.

Zelda.

shindrA said:

Seriously you cannot play goldeneye or FPS on console any more. The game had its peak when computers weren't popular. Mario tennis and the wrestling games are a must. I'm longing for their releases to VC.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Definitely Smash Bros.

Avatar

JosephTheSquirrel said:

Man this was hard. I had to choose between my personal favorites here. Majora's Mask because it is a unique Zelda, Banjo-Kazooie because it was just great, or the original Smash Bros because.. it was Smash bros! Hmm.

Avatar

Wiimaster said:

Sin & punishment.

Avatar

Gonzo said:

It was a hard decision. They have some hardcore games on this. I chose NBA Courtside. It was between that or All-Star Baseball, or WWF Wrestlemania 2000.

Avatar

jskrdude said:

I picked Perfect Dark. It's an awesome game. Besides, I already have 007 Goldeneye and Super Smash Bros. Oh, I also think that Star Wars Pod Racer should become downloadable.

Avatar

Yoshi-1up said:

Super Smash Bros, Banjo Kazooie, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Perfect Dark. All of them! Hard to pick.

Avatar

Splintercell4ever said:

Well, a lot of those games on there won't make it because of ownership of Rare to Microsoft, but who wouldn't want Conker's Bad Fur Day. It's so damn funny. Especially the Giant Singing Poo.

Avatar

asparaWIIgus said:

Why does everyone want smash bros when we're getting a way better SSBB later this year? Who needs 2 smash bros?

Avatar

lman07 said:

I am not surprised to see that goldenEye and super smash are the best. But I am surprised to see that nobody or few people have voted for some other really good titles, such as 1080 snowboarding or wave race.

Avatar

Keelan said:

I voted Other. For Mystical Ninja.

Avatar

Master Foot said:

I chose Conker because of its crude humor and silly gameplay. GoldenEye is obvious, Jet Force Gemini FTW!, Banjo and Perfect Dark. It's a pity that Microsoft took Rare and flushed it down the crapper. Rare was a force to be reckoned with back in the late 16 and 64 bit days and they had outstanding game quality overall.

Avatar

wiifan1975 said:

I was like Scooby Jew. No question about my vote. Perfect Dark. Played a friend's cart and never got around to buying it. I still have my 64 on the video switchbox with my Wii and a PS2 that's collecting dust since I finished the star wars games that didn't make it onto Nintendo systems. I may go online and bid for a cart of perfect dark now that it's on my mind again. Thanks for the poll.

Upex said:

I wanted to go for Smash bros but I just had to go for goldeneye because it was amazing.

thomas said:

Pokemon Snap! That game was so fun.

Avatar

Elementrat said:

I voted Perfect Dark for the MASSIVE replay value. If only developers made games with so much extra stuff to do nowadays.

Avatar

Andrew said:

Conkers bad fur day ftw. Wii want Conker and banjo games please! Forget the rest.

Avatar

Koen van Beeck said:

I'd LOVE to play Banjo Kazooie again! That game was brilliant.

Avatar

Andrew said:

Bill Gates and Microsoft, please for the love of god just stick to computers, because you have no idea what us real gamers want! I want Rare back to Nintendo.

Avatar

New Wii-Land said:

Shadow Man, that's the game I want on my virtual console. I want it more than Megan Fox in lycra.

Avatar

Conker said:

Well I voted for myself as my contract forbade me to play my own game on the original console (n64). So I want to complete my own game on the Wii. I also want Zelda Majora's Mask again.

Avatar

ssbbssbbssbb said:

What about kirby? I remember the good old days with kirby sucking in 2 different guys and getting a super cool power.

Avatar

B Darius said:

I want ALL of Rare's N64 games to be on the VC! That includes "Donkey Kong 64", "Banjo-Kazooie" AND "Banjo-Tooie". And some other ones as well.

Avatar

DragonFoxCoon said:

I voted for Perfect Dark, for upping the Goldeneye multiplayer capabilities. Otherwise I'd have gone for that, followed by the strangely absent Mario Party 2, Conker, Legend of Zelda and Mario Tennis.

Avatar

singapore meh said:

Why would anyone want the original super smash bros? Everyone who owns a Wii has melee and will get brawl. If you've played the original since then, it plays way worse than you probably remember it.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Seriously! What's the big deal about Goldeneye? I just don't get it.

Avatar

aidancro said:

WHERE is mystical ninja on that list? Seriously, that's such an overlooked N64 gem! Anyways, I chose jet force gemini.

Avatar

Splintercell4ever said:

What's the big deal about Golden Eye? Golden Eye revolutionized multiplayer action and was the first bond game in the series to finally benefit from its license. And who could forget the throwing knives in multiplayer?

Avatar

Splintercell4ever said:

The original smash bros was the best in the series. My friend and I still play it often over melee a lot. I remember having to hide a controller from my friend because all we did was play super smash bros all night.

Avatar

SuperLink said:

I'm for smash bros no matter what (even though there are some other pretty good games listed).

Avatar

budroux said:

Now, if you could do goldeneye online then I would purchase it from the VC, but I already own it on the N64 and my N64 is still hooked up, as every generation Nintendo. Why pick a game you already have and spend money on the same game? I always like to try and pick games that I don't have. That reminds me, I need to go play ActRaiser.

Avatar

LOZfan said:

I bet they put the original super smash bros on the virtual console near the release of super smash bros brawl.

C'mon guys 1080 was a good game.

Wherewulf1 said:

What about Conker's Bad Fur Day. It was awesome.

KirbyRulez said:

I would love to see golden eye but where is Dk 64?! That was a great game, and I'd like crystal shards (kirby).

Avatar

yah yah said:

Goldeneye 007 is the best n64 game ever made.

Avatar

mike cliffe said:

I still think goldeneye is the best game ever made, the only exception for me to keyboard and mouse was this game (of course with left sided 1. 2 solitair controls). Halo and other games don't match on terms of sheer control of character (although halo is good and I will get halo 3). What I'd like to see is an addon attachment for the wiimote for an N64 pad and goldeneye brought out for online play. It would sell on the VC by the bucket load.

Nova said:

The game that made me buy a Gamecube was Star Wars Rogue Squadron II. The Original was fantastic too. So I voted on that.

lman07 said:

Where's diddy kong racing?

Gamefreak said:

Majora's Mask, dammit.

WiiNinja said:

Where's "Kirby and the Crystal Shards"? The mini-games were the best.

Avatar

Sonic Phantom said:

CJ, have you ever watched any James Bond movies? Because I have seen just about all of them. Goldeneye is no exception. As of the games for sure. I voted WWF No Mercy. Why? One of the best wrestling games out there. I also want Banjo Kazooie on the VC. I still want to play Majora's Mask. And of course Smash Bros. And I hope Mario Tennis will be on the VC. It's pretty good. Oh and what's so special about Conker? I mean, I know the crude humor, but I thought he was for kids.

Guess whoever voted for Wave Race got their wish.

Avatar

jskrdude said:

We DON'T need Super Smash Bros 64 on the vc. It's a really good game, but it hasn't held up that well, and melee is so much better and more fun.

Avatar

B Darius said:

Yo, Phantom! To answer your question, Rare thought that Conker would be a cute, yet forgetful character in the gaming franchise. So they restarted the series with "Conker's Bad Fur Day".

Avatar

IAN FOSSE said:

Goldeneye.

Avatar

Sonic Phantom said:

I see, I knew about the game you mentioned. I was just curious. I wonder if Rare is going to make another Conker game? We'll have to wait and see. Looks like Goldeneye is real close to Smash Bros, which leads me to another question. Which game is better: Goldeneye or Super Smash Bros? I'd have to say Smash Bros.

Avatar

Andrew said:

Just one question, where is Donkey Kong 64? In my opinion the best game of all time.

Avatar

AndrosJL said:

Please put snowboarding kids from n64 on the virtual console, it was really good fun.

Avatar

Splintercell4ever said:

I notice a lot of the lesser known titles were in the later stages of the console's reign. Seriously, the games toward the beginning of its crusade were much better. Take more than ten minutes to make the list next time.

Avatar

Andrew said:

Sonic phantom have you been hiding under a rock or something? Rare has already made a conker game, it's called conker:live and reloaded.

Avatar

Gabooo said:

Smash and link all the way, but I'm surprised conker's bad fur day isn't as high as some of the others. That game rocked.

Avatar

B Darius said:

Andrew, have you been hiding under a boulder or something?! "Conker: Live & Reloaded" is a remake of "Conker's Bad Fur Day".

Avatar

world wide wii said:

Cool it's a tie between goldeneye and ssb 64.

Avatar

world wide wii said:

Why not just put all the games on the virtual console then everybody's happy right? Suuupaaa! Personally I voted for super smash bros 64.

Avatar

Pito Peludo said:

Golden Eye 007. We need this for the Wii, FAST.

Avatar

B Darius said:

I voted for "Banjo-Kazooie"! That's one of the best N64 games in my opinion. Next to "Donkey Kong 64", that is.

Avatar

Sonic Phantom said:

Andrew, I said are they ever going to make another Conker game? Not, has there been any other Conker game besides "Conker's Bad Fur Day". Gonzo, why did you not say "WWF No Mercy?". That game rocked the house. I wonder why Mario Party 1, 2 or 3 wasn't on here?

Avatar

Nintendoof said:

What! Bearly (that's a pun) anyone voted for Banjo Tooie. Have any of you played that? Awesome. But SSB was cool too. AHHHH can't decide, I voted For Banjo Tooie though. Ohh and did anyone notice Pokemon Stadium 1&2 weren't on there? Crazy.

Jet Force Gemini would own on the Wii. The gameplay was kickass, with characters going transparent when they got in the line of vision. With the Wii remote and gun shells, Jet Force Gemini would be an awesome experience on the Wii. With graphic updates, the game would rock the shooter genre, third or first person because the game itself is not quite first person, not quite third person.

Avatar

SSBB Obsession said:

Super Smash Bros. Hands-Down! It is the one which started the trilogy and hopefully it won't stop at 3. Oh, and Mr N64 controller, Super Smash Bros to the Virtual Console! I wonder why they haven't done that yet. That would have a LOT of downloads.

Wii's World said:

Woo, how close is this!

WiiNinja said:

One of the best parts in Kirby 64 was the fact that you could combine different powers, like Ice and Electric (my personal favorite; the refrigerator). Who liked the flame-sword?

Avatar

Smash Champion said:

I liked the flame sword, but loved the electric sword and the dynamite.

Avatar

WiiNinja said:

The question is: Why are there games on the list that nobody cares about, like Madden NFL 2000 (0%)? Where's Kirby?

Avatar

WiiNinja said:

Wiisworld, of the 36 titles presented, only 15 are above the first percentile. I say you should at least eliminate a few of the remaining 21 and put forgotten games that probably more than one percent of voters cared about. Thanks.

Avatar

Elebot said:

Dude, I freaking love that Kirby game. It is still my favorite as of now. All of the different power-ups were awesome. I think my favorite was the electric sword. Very Star Wars-esque.

I can't wait for ssbb to come out so I had to vote for ssb. Logically when ssbb comes out they will release ssb.

Well, well, what have we here!? 007 GoldenEye is in the lead! But just by 1%.

Wait, 007 in the lead? Why?

Personally, I voted for "Other". Kirby's not on the list. Oh, WiiNinja, my favorite's cutting and rock.

I'd say GoldenEye 007, Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Super Smash Bros should all be on there, they are probably my best.

Golden Eye is WINNING?

Avatar

David k said:

I didn't choose goldeneye because I think the Classic controller would suck with it, and also I have it still on n64. Same as perfect dark, which is better than goldeneye. So I was stuck between donkey kong 64 and smash bros and res evil 2. But DK64 wasn't there and I chose RE2.

Banjo-Kazooie. Come on people, vote for it. It was my favorite Nintento 64 game.

Avatar

wii nerd said:

I think goldeneye is one of the big classic games in history.

Avatar

B Darius said:

I think it's a little too late for that, Unknown. Donkey Kong 64 came out in the 90s. Besides, Rare doesn't make Donkey Kong games any more.

Pete the WiiMan said:

Jet Force Gemini all the way! When I last played that game 8 years ago or so it was my favorite.

ToTaLgAmEr said:

I chose 1080 snowboarding because I thought the second one was so fun for the gamecube, am I wrong here? Second would have to be pokemon snap because it's just so fun.

dizzy boy said:

I would love to see star wars episode one racer. This was an ace racer that also pushed the tech capabilities of the n64. Definitely my choice.

Wow. Still nobody's voted for Madden NFL 2000. Must've been a crappy game.

wii said:

5 words - midway presents NFL Blitz 2000.

rushite2112 said:

I had a pretty tough time on this one. Goldeneye, banjo kazooie and perfect dark were quite tempting to pick. I chose other because my one true dream is to get starfox 64 on the virtual console.

Avatar

rushite2112 said:

I don't see why sports games would be desired when there are better ones you can buy right now.

Avatar

WiiNinja said:

Right, my point exactly: Newer sports games replace the old.

Avatar

rawdawg64 said:

Why isn't Turok on this list. It is the best N64 game ever, although I voted for GoldenEye 007. It's a disgrace to gamers everywhere that Turok is not on the list.

Avatar

Splintercell4ever said:

Actually, if you ever played Madden 2000 it features some things that aren't in the newer versions. In 2000, you can play as the NFC Probowl teams and AFC Probowl teams in exhibition play. It's also interesting to see the referees actually make line measurements like they do in real life. Finally, it was the one of the final Maddens that featured the legendary commentator, Pat Summerall.

Avatar

mawson07 said:

Is everybody mad? What about resident evil 2, easily the best game on 64.

Avatar

Stillplayingthe64 said:

When I saw the list I was disappointed one of my favorite N64 games wasn't there! It's my opinion that the best N64 game was megaman64, I just loved the way it played. Also the storyline was left WIDE open and never concluded. So I picked an old favorite Harvest Moon, it's not an amazing game but it's cute. Well, they're all good games.

1080 snowboarding would be awesome. I always loved playing it with my friends and it would be great for the Wii VC.

Goldeneye 007 for sure, loved it. Super smash bros second.

Diddy Kong Racing for DS came out a while ago. That'd be sweet to play Banjo-Tooie again.
